Now you can own a historic collector's set of US stamps commemorating our country's 200-year anniversary in 1976.
The US Bicentennial was a series of celebrations during the mid-1970s that commemorated the historic events leading to America's independence from Great Britain. The official events began on April 1, 1975, when the American Freedom Train departed Delaware to begin a 21-month, 25,338-mile tour of the 48 contiguous states. For more than a year, a wave of patriotism swept the nation as elaborate firework displays lit up skies across the US, an international fleet of tall-mast sailing ships gathered in New York City and Boston, and Queen Elizabeth made a state visit. The celebration culminated on July 4, 1976, with the 200th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.
The USPS issued 113 commemorative stamps over six years to honor the US bicentennial, beginning with the American Revolution Bicentennial Commission Emblem stamp. As a group, the Bicentennial Series chronicles one of our nation's most important chapters, and documents the events and patriots who made the US a world model for liberty.
